A few notes on receiving live lobster:

  • After a long day of travel, some lobsters may be lethargic. Don't mistake this for dead. Allow the lobsters some time in the tank to catch their breath.
  • Make sure to keep a good inventory in your tank. Should your tank become empty or down to just a few lobsters, you must only add a few new ones at a time or you will disrupt the tank balance.

Please visit our resources page for more information on lobster tanks and maintenance.
